0-12 points in 4.7 seconds?

I did 24 points on an XR500 30 years ago, but that took me the better part of a minute.

With Mark's return time carved in granite, that's going to shorten your excursion a bit.

Rain I can deal with, blowing and drifting snow would be less fun. Looks like I'll have a solid week of detailing ahead of me when I get back from vacation.

Now you've got me re-thinking my Guzzi trip route - I was going to jam across 58 to the coast from Mojave/Tehachapi....and keep heading north.
Wonder how the Natchez Trace is looking

J/K... I like the coast when it's foggy and uncrowded - like it was when I grew up there.

Listen, I've turned over a new leaf since summer ended. From here on out, I'm gonna be on the strait and narrow.

Assuming he gets off of his lazy ass and puts them on the bike right away, $20 says he has a ticket by this time on Friday. And possibly calling one of us by Monday for bail money.

Those new wheels look straight, but they ain't narrow. Them's hooligan tires, too.

Actually Alpha team is leaving at 0400 Friday morning headed for Wolf Creek for the weekend. Not sure if you saw the forecast, but it goes something like this: snow, more snow, tons of snow.
